Music Ensemble Studios

There are two Music Ensemble rooms within the Media Factory to facilitate individual or group instrument playing or singing activities.

The Music Ensemble has been refurbished to create a dual-purpose music space. It is equipped with drum kit, piano and backline equipment making it suitable as a rehearsal space, but it can also be used as a live performance space for bands and small ensembles.

Please note that these studios are used for scheduled teaching activities. The studios are available for authorised students to book outside of these times for individual or small group study purposes via the student room booking system.

Use of the studios by others is by special arrangement which is usually attained by the provision of a demonstrable rationale for the use of the resources contained within this facility that directly supports their course of study. This may require a referral from an academic tutor. Subsequently, if approved, you may be required to attend a facility induction run by technical staff.


The Music Ensemble Studios can be found in 111, 125 of the Media Factory
